8TH GRADE ADVANCED LANGUAGE ARTS APPLICATION IS NOW OPEN FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR!
Advanced Language Arts:
Students in the advanced course engage in highly-differentiated curriculum in order to help prepare them for advanced classes in high school.

Students are also exposed to higher-level learning through an introduction to Shakespeare and literary criticism theory. Students are admitted into the program through an application in the spring. The expectation is that students have a strong foundation in reading and writing upon entering the program.
Applications are being accepted starting April 2nd, 2019 until the deadline on Friday, April 26th, 2019.
